New Donor Question???

Post by King91274 on Fri Feb 18, 2011 11:51 am

I want to donate my excess BM locally but am skeptical about giving a stranger my home address but am unwilling to ship. How would you go about this????

If you are donating to someone local you could deliver to their house if you don't want to give out your address.
Or you could meet in a neutral location, a coffee shop or something.
This will be more work on your part, as you will need to transport the milk in a cooler to make sure it stays frozen

You would not need to give anyone your home address. Once you make a connection on this forum or by email then you select a public meeting spot that is somewhat convient for both of you. The moms I donated to I met in the parking lot of Toys-r-us and the parking lot of the movie theatre. You can pick anywhere that you feel comfortable. I usually exchanged cell phone #'s in case someone was running late or I had a problem finding them. It is pretty normal that you would take your child and they would bring theirs -- so that everyone can see that there really are children.

Just find a public place to meet and make sure that someone knows where you are going to be.

Make sure that you are clear to the other mom what your expectations are. If you want replacement bags -- how many and what kind.

If you find a situation that you don't feel right about -- then move on. You are the one donating and you mostly get to make the rules.

I enjoyed the experience and found a couple of very nice moms that I still keep in touch with even though I don't donate anymore.

Good Luck !!
Feel Free to send me a message if you have any other questions.

Thank u. I have a toysrus 8 minutes away so that sounds great. Should I put the milk in a styrofoam cooler for transport? Is that sufficient?
